Such a tasty and quick recipe from our Weekday Raw course.
The idea behind this salad is that you gather up all your favourite veggies, or even what you have in the fridge, and pulse it down just right in the food processor, to then add a simple and delicious salad dressing to.

Thank you for sharing. I love getting your videos!
hello! you recipes is very cool,
I have one question,can i use this recipes for my website?
Hey John, happy for you to use this recipe, and any others in the free recipe section from my site, on your site, as long as it has a link back to therawchef.com Thanks!
For sure tomorrow I am eating this salad, I don’t have pine nuts but I am going to use some cashews!!!
I have been looking for sprouted Quinoa at our health food stores and can’t find any.. are there any subs ? Thanks cannot wait to try this.. I made your little pizza bites the other day and they were looooved 🙂
I’ve never seen sprouted quinoa in a shop – I buy quinoa and then sprout it myself. You can use this method for sprouting buckwheat to do quinoa too.
Oh — and a question: Is there any ingredient you would recommend avoiding for this salad? (I’m wondering about onions, for example.) Thanks!
Onions would be fine, but just in small amounts. Maybe go for a spring onion rather than a white or red one.
I’ve made this salad according to the recipe several times and really love the flavor combination, texture, and visual presentation. But today, I decided to try the “throw everything you have in the fridge into it” method. I was nervous, because I had so few of the ingredients in the original recipe. I had carrots, parsley, romaine, zucchini, lemon juice, tomatoes, almonds, and some leftover chopped portobello mushroom soaked in nama shoyu. I put everything in but the tomatoes in the food processor and pulsed, then I chopped a tomato and put it on top. It tastes delicious! And because the lemon and the nama shoyu combined so nicely, I didn’t even need a dressing.
I want to tell you that your raw food course and instructive recipes like this one have made me so much braver about creating my own concoctions, which is really where you start to have fun in the kitchen. And since we have to eat every day, that makes a life so much more enjoyable! Thanks, Russell.
